This is my favorite hotel in the Menlo Park/Palo Alto area. It has an elegance and attentiveness to detail that others lack. Rooms are comfortable, well apportioned, and the property is well located to the University, shopping, and other local venues. Staff here are exceptionally responsive to guest needs, and always willing to help out.

I have been to the Stanford Park Hotel many times for business trips. This last trip they gave me a nice upgrade. Everything was perfect, once again. On my third morning I had to leave at 5:30 to catch an early flight from SFO, and really appreciated the complimentary coffee next to the lobby.

I've stayed with this hotel a number of times and it is my favourite when in Silicon Valley. The staff are always extremely helpful and courteous. The rooms are a great size, very private and quite and have all of the amenities you'd need. Great fire-pits outside for a cold winter night and nice fireplace in the foyer too. Outdoor...

Twice I've stayed at Stanford Park Hotel, for business both times, and I would go back anytime. From the moment you walk in the door you feel cared for. The fire is going, inviting groupings of chairs both outdoors (with a fire pit) and indoors, rocking chairs all contribute to a relaxing setting. The rooms are quite spacious; the first...

I have stayed here in the past for business due to it's location near Stanford University. This trip was for pleasure, and it continues to please.

First, the bad which ended when Manager Peter Houston made a supreme effort to alievate my concerns. My $865 night room was beyond dated, it was dark and very oddly configured.The makeup mirror was bolted to the wall at almost 6 foot high. The furniture was dated and, frankly, a bit tired looking. The view was the freeway and a...

This place is different from any other hotels I have stayed, mostly are big name franchise. Not sure if it's because it's location, which is a couple of blocks from Stanford University, or the designer unique touch. It carries certain academic atmosphere and feel warm and home. We saw most guests are at well established age. However, my two preteen...
